Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern look joyful at the latest claim coming from BBC Sport who note that the Blues have re-signed club legend Didier Drogba.
The Blues have been linked with their greatest ever player for some time now and the deal is now finally official with Drogba coming home on a free transfer.
The Ivorian forward spoke after being unveiled and claimed: “It was an easy decision – I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to work with Jose again.
“Everyone knows the special relationship I have with this club and it has always felt like home to me.
“My desire to win is still the same and I look forward to the opportunity to help this team. I am excited for this next chapter of my career.”
As one of our punters notes over a pint, we think that Drogba will have a massive role to play next season and with Romelu Lukaku potentially leaving along with Fernando Torres, the Blues and Jose Mourinho will need all the help they can get in front of goal.
Chelsea fans. Do you think that Drogba will be able to live up to expectation or will this be a mistake that tarnishes his legacy at the club? Let us know your thoughts below.
